Children are the future - the camp experience is a way to give them something special, a chance to explore new opportunities, spark new interests and be a true friend. No matter the time you spend at camp 2, 4, or 6 weeks, there is always something to take away from your time at Camp Emerson.

It’s easy to forget - Children are the future… a bold statement, but as you go through the everyday, just stop and think. This generation of kids will one day become the next world leaders, thinkers, inventors, friends, colleagues, and dare I say it President.

Think back to the positive experiences that helped to shape you, what friends have influenced who you are as a person. How did you get to where you are today?

Then apply that thinking to what you want for your children - what positive experiences can you give your child to enable them to be the well rounded, self-advocating, kind, team players that we hope for.

I see Camp Emerson as a magical place, where children from across America and the World - make new friends, learn new skills and most importantly, find themselves. Passion is something you can’t teach, it is nurtured, nurtured at times though the camp experience and our caring and supportive staff. We hear time and time again, that kids live 10 for 2. They look forward to their time at camp, they are free from the pressures of school, they can be themselves, when they throw themselves into this experience it has a profound ability to shape a persons future, help them with key social skills, overcoming their own barriers. Sparking an interest in art, music, science, swim and 40+ other options, can alter a child path and lead them in a different direction from this new passion.

Once you learn what really means to be a good friend, how to be inclusive and supportive team player, how to tie your shoe laces, you don’t forget, you apply this knowledge to life outside of camp.

Children are the future and Camp is the gift that keeps on giving.
